High Contrast Scenes

As some of you may have noticed, I've been doing a lot of high contrast scenes the last week and it's kind of been on purpose.  Just trying to push in some interesting directions and make the ordinary a little more interesting.  Here's one I saw after getting out of the car on my street.  With the leaves falling and cars going by it makes a really interesting line going down the street.  Combine that with some extremely narrow depth of field and you've got yourself a picture.

I tried using my car for the picture because my hubcap is cracked so I thought it might be more interesting, but the splash of red from the volvo(?) tail-light won me over on this picture instead.  I like the perspective line of the cars, the line of leaves, the narrow depth of field line leading you to the wheel and the red tail-light leading my eyes up.......maybe I'm just looking at pictures too much.
